goodbye 2010...

although i'm a firm believer in not wishing your life away,
i'm glad to see 2010 go away...it's been a tough year for me personally, for my loved ones and friends.
we all know what is going on financially in our world...blah, blah, blah...
what about the matters of the heart???
for me and my family, it's been a tough one...
my mom left this world to be with jesus only six months ago and prior to that my husband lost his dad...i did not think that christmas was going to be this hard, but it was...for me and for my family...
dealing with all the emotions is hard enough when you loose someone you love so very much but to deal with all the JUNK that goes along with loosing someone you love, your emotions do flips, flops, twists and turns...
i tend to crawl up into that familiar ball and not reach out to the people that love me...hopefully, that will change in 2011 with a lot of prayer and work on my end...
my son had surgery on his knee four weeks ago and although that was a scary time, he is doing great and healing amaziningly...
my daughter is well...dealing with the loss of her grandma this year has been really tough on her, but she loves her job and is working really hard...
my husband is always working hard and trying hard to be a support system to me...we've been married for almost thirty years now and i look forward to spending some good times with him in 2011...he's had a tough year himself with the loss of his dad and the loss of my mom...
and to my friends that have dealt with trials, loss and illnesses...i hope and pray that your 2011 brings you joy in your heart and peace in your lives...
i don't really know what i've learned this year...i know god has taught me something but my head and my heart are still in a fog...i'm hoping to look back on 2010 and see that i've grown spiritually and learned whatever the lord has for me...i do know this...the lord will NEVER give me anything i can't handle {although i feel like i'm not handling things okay} and that HE LOVES ME {which i tend to forget}...
i'm looking forward to joy in my heart, and peace and content in my life as well...
i need to learn to forgive those that have hurt me and move on...
all in all, i'm looking forward to what 2011 has in store for my family...
blessings to you...
xoxo

I hope you have a great new year & try to remember the good things about this year. But like you, I'm not sitting here crying that 2010 is leaving! It's like, "hey, don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out"!! I have this gut feeling that 2011 is going to be much better for our world, the time has come!

Take care, Sue

Happy, Wealthy, Healthy New Year Robin. You have been dealing with a lot in one year! It's been a hard year for most of the people that I know. So much has changed but one thing that hasn't change is the support and love of our kids and husband. Also I am so blessed to have you ladies in my life at Chateau, it's been a blast and I am looking forward to share my creativity with you. See you real soon, maybe burger lounge? Ciao Rita
